Fri-Yay Favs + Finds

It’s been awhile since we last posted. It’s senior year; and anyone who’s been here knows it’s like sprinting one day from one thing to another and a marathon the next with studying for classes and exams. I’m exactly 9 weeks into senior year. (Only 34 weeks to go!) And it’s FRI-YAY! – a perfect time to take a moment to enjoy the finer (and fun) things in life and share them!

Each Friday, I’ll post some of my favorite things and information that I think you’ll appreciate too. Life keeps us all so busy. Why not take time out to share things we enjoy, save our sanity or just plain tickle us pink, right?

On that note, I’ll start with my favorite snacks. It’s hard to stay healthy on the go but it’s all about selecting the right snacks. Here’s what you’ll find in my lunchbox any given day.

FAVS

The best granola! It’s delicious and has something the others don’t – probiotics. There are tons of benefits of probiotics including our brain and mental health. Feeling overwhelmed with school work and exams? In one study, researchers found probiotics can reduce anxiety, relieve stress and improve mental outlook1. You can find purely elizabeth. granola at your local grocery (see here) or on Amazon.

Do you like yogurt but dairy doesn’t agree with you? Try this coconut milk alternative yogurt. It’s true to its name – so delicious! You can find this brand at most local grocers.
For the times you are craving crackers, keep it healthy by picking up
From the Ground Up Cauliflower Crackers – the healthy alternative to Cheese-it.
Ditch the chips and starchy bad carbs. Go for the healthy proteins and fiber. Don’t worry. It won’t feel like a sacrifice…more like an indulgence with these savory snacks: The Good Bean Chickpeas and Happy Belly Whole Almonds.
